Archie Comics had told us that Archie would die in the out-of-continuity-such-as-there-is Life Of Archie comic, that looks at a number of future and what if scenarios for the familiar characters, often taking a route down more serious issues of life, death and romance.
Well, it goes for all of that on Wednesday in Life Of Archie #36, when Archie dies taking a bullet meant for Kevin Keller, Archie's first out gay character.
And in Life Of Archie, Kevin is now a veteran, married to his husband, and elected senator on a platform of increasing gun control in Riverdale, after his husband was involved in a shooting.
Who Shot Archie? That's for later…
